Brighton have reportedly had £6 million bid for Bristol City centre-back Aden Flint rejected.
The 28 year-old centre-back stands at 6ft 6in and is currently a key part of the Robins side who are pushing for promotion to the Premier League. He recently came to prominence as a titan in the Bristol side which put it up to Manchester City over two legs in the Carabao Cup. He is known for his goalscoring even though he lines out in defence, having notched up 34 goals across 187 league games at Bristol since he signed there in 2013. In spite of their reputations, Shane Duffy and Lewis Dunk have not been as effective as expected from set pieces, and perhaps Chris Hughton wants to make more use of Pascal Gross' ability at set-pieces. In the summer, Flint was pursued by Birmingham City but ultimately the club failed to meet Bristol's £10 million valuation. Perhaps Brighton was have to exceed that old asking price to secure their man. Jan 25 - 6:54 AM

Brighton centre-back Shane Duffy is surprisingly in with a chance of playing for his club against West Ham on Friday night.

Duffy limped off towards the end of The Seagulls' 1-1 draw with Everton on Sunday with a groin complaint. There were fears that the Republic of Ireland defender could miss a number of weeks with the injury. However, Chris Hughton gave a very positive update on Duffy's progress in his pre-match press conference on Thursday: "At the moment we think he'll be okay. He hasn't trained. We're hoping he'll train this morning." If Duffy comes through that session you can expect him to start against the Hammers.

Brighton centre-back Shane Duffy will head for a scan on Monday after limping off during Sundays 1-1 draw with Everton.

The Republic of Ireland international had played in every Premier League minute of the season to date, but was forced off at the AMEX Stadium following a challenge with Oumar Niasse in which Duffy landed awkwardly: "I’m all right, a bit sore at the minute. I’ll get scanned in the morning and see how it is but it feels not too bad. It was like a pop or a shot feeling but it [groin] has calmed down now. I’ve iced it and had treatment and it feels a little bit better but I’ll see tomorrow." The Seagulls travel to West Ham in game week 9, and should further tests rule the defender out, then Chris Hughton may call upon the services of Uwe Hünemeier who has been restricted to just two starts this term – both in the Carabao Cup – and only 17 minutes of league action.

Blackburn Rovers have signed Republic of Ireland international defender Shane Duffy from Premier League Everton for an undisclosed fee.

Duffy was tipped for big things at Everton, but he has never been able to break in to the first team and spent all of last season on loan at Yeovil. The emergence last season of John Stones means Roberto Martinez has now allowed Duffy to move to Blackburn on a permanent deal, with the defender signing a three year contract at Ewood Park.
